A large amount of this originates from the American cartoon series and the first live-action film. A good portion of the memes relate to M. Bison.
When adding to one of the subpages, please follow this format. Not everyone knows where a particular meme came from or how it's used. Even if it's potholed.
* Meme name: [[labelnote:Explanation]]description of meme and how it's used.[[/labelnote]]
OFCOURSE!Explanation Bison dramatically turns and delivers this line when Sagat shows surprise at the reveal that Guile faked his death. Popularized as a meme by The Nostalgia Critic in reference to any villain whose plan is to, you guessed it, take over the world.
Quick! Change the channel!Explanation Zangief's dimwitted comment as a video broadcast displays an explosive heading directly for Bison's base.
You got... paid? (unfortunately, Balrog wasn't there to fully cash in on that scene) Explanation Zangief makes a heel face turn after discovering that not only was Bison the villain, but his compatriots (most notably Dee Jay) only worked for Bison for the money. Balrog addendum is a reference to him saying "I GOT PAID!" during one of his winposes in the Capcom vs. SNKgames.
From Dee Jay: "Oh man, I should have stayed at Microsoft". Explanation During the siege on Bison's base as Dee Jay attempts to escape.
GAAME OVER!! Explanation Bison's triumphant exclamation as he destroys Guile's stealth boat and believes he's finished him off. For added hilarity, the controls for the river's automated defenses were co-opted from a Street Fighter II arcade cabinet.
You still refuse to accept my GODHOOD!? KEEP your own God! In fact, now my be a good time to PRAY TO HIM. For I befell Satan as he FELL FROM HEAVEN! LIKE LIGHTNING!!Explanation Bison's excessively hammy proclamation to Guile in their final fight moments before he's beaten.
"NOOOOOOO!"Explanation Guile is unhappy to see Cammy kissing and allying with Bison, due to brainwashing. Any sense of drama is destroyed by Guile shaking his fists like a toddler and a rather upbeat musical cue.
"Blanka, no, not the head bite!" Explanation Due to getting mutated a little more, Blanka has severe anger issues. After Vega tries to kill his satellite love interest, Blanka goes berserk. Cue Guile trying to stop Blanka and cue Blanka turning on Guile and attempts to bite his head.
"BIIIIISONNNNNN!!!!" (random fire sprouts up) Explanation Guile cursing Bison's name when he learns Blanka's been exposed to a deadly virus. When he shouts Bison's name, flames randomly sprout behind him for no reason.
"You're supposed to die!" Explanation In "So You Want to Be in Pictures", Ken acts in Fei Long's movie and his character was originally supposed to die. After gaining creative control of the movie, Ken kept re-writing the script so that his character wouldn't die among other things.
Wooga wooga wooga! Explanation The cute sound Ken makes as he noogies Ryu.
"You're so sensitive!" Explanation A few seconds later quip by Ken to Ryu after the latter throws the former off of him.
"Japanese fighters stick together... 'CAUSE WE'RE BROTHERS!! AHAHAHAHAHA!" Explanation E. Honda offering Ryu half the prize money he earned from beating Dhalsim in a fight, mainly because Dhalsim sensed Ryu's presence and that allowed Honda to get the winning blow in. That and Dhalsim forfeited as well.
"I'm the welcome wagon!" Explanation Balrog near the end of the film, right before he faces off with Honda. Notable due to the line's delivery and Balrog's facial features being ridiculously Off Model to the point of Balrog appearing to be lacking in terms of mental capacities.
Guile's theme goes with everything!Explanation Take Guile's theme and apply it to any situation.
A comment from Fresh Prince vs Guile Theme:Guile's Theme is a metaphor for the collective human consciousness, the timings for its beats and rhythm changes being perfectly or near perfectly set to allow it to fit in with any scene and genre with no need to cut it to fit in. In addition, the emotion of the song itself is of universal appeal, fitting in with any plot, be it tragic, heroic or action packed. Only an omniscient and omnipresent entity could have crafted such a perfect composition... thus Guile's Theme is proof there is a god.
"Go home and be a family man!"Explanation Guile's Street Fighter II ending. It's also one of his victory quotes (but only appears in the console ports), which got a reprise (and several derivatives) in IV.
"Dosukoi!" Explanation An exclamation commonly used by sumo wrestlers. Honda uses it whenever he does his aforementioned flying headbutt, as well as in one of his win poses.
"Can't you do better than that?"
HELLOOOOOO~KEN!Explanation Each and any of these are Mondegreens, which by the very nature of that trope... are memetic on their own. For the sake of clarity, though, the explanations will contain the attacks referenced. For example, this one is "Hadoken."
"The fight is all!" Explanation Ryu's motivation for Walking the Earth and seeking out stronger opponents than he is.
"You must defeat Sheng Long to stand a chance." Explanation "Sheng Long" was a mistranslation of the "Shoryu" in Shoryuken, which left people scratching their heads as to what Sheng Long meant. Lead to an infamous April Fool's joke by EGM, which in turn is believed to have influenced the creation of Akuma in Super Street Fighter II Turbo and eventually folded back into Gouken (the basis of the Sheng Long hoax) becoming a playable character in IV.
"Ha ha ha ha ha! Yatta!" Explanation Chun-Li's quote during one of her winposes. It has appeared in most of her subsequent appearances.
"I'm the strongest woman in the world!" Explanation Chun-Li's win quote.
Aside from the nikes things, there has been a surge of YouTube comments turning Guy and the story of Final Fight into a parody of Blaxploitation films due to the funky style of his theme in IV. Its name? Bushinryu Jones.
"Fei Long needs/wants WATEEEEEEEEEEERRRR!" or ""What does Fei Long love to drink? 'WA-TAAA!!'" Explanation Yet another Mondegreen, now of Fei Long's Kiai screams.
Oni is banned. Explanation Oni isn't really banned, but people love to joke about it because he's a rare character and his overall design just screams "broken." Amusingly, in the past, Oni was considered a poor character, and characters in other games that were low tier were "banned" as well.
"I AM THE PROTECTOR OF RUSSIA'S SKIES!"note Same as above, but with Gief's Siberian Blizzard Ultra instead. Cue jokes pertaining to the Red Cyclone being the last line in Russia's missile defense system.
"SKY PROTECTED!"note Commentary from Chris Hu during a match between Dragon God (Akuma) and Aquasilk (Zangief), where Zangief catches Akuma with his Siberian Blizzard. Branches off of the above "I am the protector of Russia's skies!" quote. Since Aquasilk primarily uses this Ultra, this meme is also heavily associated with him, which can lead to even funnier moments of role reversal.
"FUCK OUTTA HEA STANDING STRONG!" note Again, Chris Hu. Done in response to Aquasilk's Zangief using his standing HP to stuff Dragon God's advance with his Akuma twice. Let's just say Chris Hu is a growing mini-factory of memes himself and call it a day.
The memes Pastor Ryu and Pastor Pil„o (Piledriver Pastor) are memes that became famous in Brazil, as remixes of footage of Pentecostal preachers and Street Fighter music.
The Beast... is UNLEASHED!Explanation "Evo 2004 Moment #37", a climactic, showstopping finish to the EVO 2004 match in Street Fighter III 3rd Strike between Daigo "The Beast" Umehara and Justin Wong. In the final round, Umehara's Ken is whittled down to his last tick of health: any damage, even chip damage, would have ended the match in Wong's favor. When Wong activates Chun-Li's Hoyoku Sen Super Art, Umehara proceeds to parry every single hit of the super and counters with his own combo, turning the tables against Wong and winning the match. More background detail on the tournament match, and what was involved in anticipating and executing the parry, can be found in articles from Penny Arcade and Edge.
"Rare footage of X [insert phrase here]." Explanation A derivative of the commentary from the above EVO match, which, upon seeing Umehara backed into a corner and on the verge of a loss, notes that this is "Rare footage of Daigo angry."
SERIOUSLY??? SERIOUSLY??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME???!!! OHHHH MAI GAWD!!!Explanation From another Umehara vs. Wong match, this time in Super Street Fighter IV. Guile vs. Rufus. The round ends with a double K.O. (see this page for the full explanation.)
